Accessible Expressions Ohio
Host Accessible Expressions Ohio at a site in your neighborhood. We work to make this easy for you: flexible date availability for scheduling; just the right number of pieces to meet the needs of your space; and a Art Possible Ohio staff member will assist with installation and deinstallation.
Each year Art Possible Ohio's Board of Directors purchases an artwork for the annual exhibition for our permenant collection.
Art Possible Ohio encourages the sale of artwork and your artwork purchase supports artists directly. We adds a 20% commission on sales to cover the cost of tours and administration.
Accessible Expressions Ohio (AEO) is one of the most diverse art exhibits on display. It is an adjudicated, statewide exhibition and tour of sixty 2D and 3D art by Ohio artists with disabilities. Artists of any age, living in Ohio, with a disability may enter in the Youth, Emerging, or Professional categories. The application for 2022 is closed. Our 2023 application will open in the fall of 2022.
Artists of any age, who are residents of Ohio and have a disability are eligible to apply. As defined by the ADA, a disability is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity. You do not have to disclose the actual disability.
Submissions must be original artwork, completed within the last 2 years. Artists may submit one (1) or two (2) entries. All artwork must have a visual component, but can be 2D, 3D, and/or wearable.
Entries are reviewed by a panel of practicing artists, educators, and arts administrators who determine standards, originality, and diversity. The team chooses which works will be in the exhibition and which will receive awards. All decisions are final.
We will post your work to our virtual exhibition through Facebook and Instagram. If your artwork is for sale it will be featured on our Square store. We will also send you a certificate of participation. Accessible Expressions Ohio also has awards available that will be chosen by the exhibition judges: Best in Show; 1st place - 3rd place in each of the three categories; and the Current Events Special Award.
Absolutely! Art Possible Ohio encourages the sale of artwork. Art Possible Ohio adds a 20% commission on sales to cover the cost of tours and administration so please take that into consideration when you price your artworks.
